The Mississippi River reached its shallowest stage in 10 years in October.

“Folks’s yard swimming pools are deeper,” towboat captain Nick Craycraft mentioned on the time.

The river drains 41% of the U.S. and components of Canada, mentioned Justin Giles, head of hydraulics for the U.S. Military Corps of Engineers’ Vicksburg, Mississippi, workplace. Widespread drought meant some components of the river fell to their lowest water ranges ever recorded.
